INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
STYLISH GUYS IN GREEN
By Matt Glazebrook, 19 March 2018
The great philosopher, Kermit the Frog, once said: ‘It’s not easy being green’. And while, in fashion terms, that may have been true until fairly recently, the last few seasons have seen leafy hues at the forefront of the sartorial spectrum. From classic military drab to fresher forest shades, here’s how the stylish set are doing emerald styles this season.
There’s something very Sunday dad about this fella’s plain green sweatshirt. Just so we know he’s doing a look (as opposed to getting papped on his way to the garden centre), he’s styled it up with other key dadcore staples: a fleece, a windbreaker and a pair of basic white sneaks.
A full forest green suit is a punchy formalwear option, but this guy’s wisely dialled it down with some casual accompaniments. Specifically, a tartan tee and stompy hiking boots.
To return to Kermit for a moment, one of the muppet’s main issues with his natural tone is that ‘it’s the colour of leaves’ and ‘it seems you blend in with so many ordinary things’. Which is exactly the point when it comes to military-issue, green-and-brown camo print. Although the only thing this dude’s going to blend in with on the cobbled streets of Paris Fashion Week is other hypebeasts in camo Gosha Rubchinskiy T-shirts.
This fella’s taken the opposite approach with his slightly psychedelic statement shirt. Pairing the rich green top with a print-clashing striped tee, tan chinos, boho bracelets and chestnut brogues, he’s created a sort of tropical Englishman abroad hybrid that’s immediately become our new holiday jam.
All of the greens
And the winner of the greenest guy on the street style scene? Mr olive drab military parka, hunter green pinstripe suit and emerald roll-neck jumper right here.
